ORGANIC AYURVEDIC FACIALS
Available by appointment in our skincare studio Mondays Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays
Pancha Karma is Ayurveda's rejuvenation art + science.
While we don't offer Pancha Karma Therapy at Solavedi, we do create our beautiful and wise skincare formulations and their sequencing in facial treatments based on this ancient healing art.

Why Pancha Karma for Skincare?

Because Pancha Karma IS the art & science of Rejuvenation.

Pancha Karma therapists take into account your unique  basic constitutional strengths and challenge before determining the best course of treatment and we apply this same approach to determining your skin type, it's current condition, and your individual metabolism prior to each facial.

We bow to Pancha Karma because it teaches us the importance of balancing detoxification (cleansing + exfoliation) with replenishing nourishment (creams + serums) in proper proportion for YOU, and it works with the power of nature to perform the work needed.

While chemical peels, manual extractions, microdermabrasion and clinic-born alpha hydroxyl acids may seem effective in dramatically reversing skin problems, Ayurveda shows us another approach.

Ayurveda would have us work with the potency of "gentling" our way with the skin.

Example: Pore Extractions.

Let's say you have blackheads.
You want those enlarged pores and blackheads gone.
Now.
So, you book a facial, expecting your esthetician to scrub and scour and squeeze your skin clean.

Well. We think that's a little problematic.
Too aggressive. Possibly damaging.
Not healing.
Not rejuvenative at all.

What would Valentina do?
She'd offer The Ayurveda Pancha Karma approach:

1. Layer your skin softening and sebum melting botanicals  (shodhana)
2. Sequence your cleansing and clarifying oil and clay applications(snehana + langhana)
3. Incorporate energy healing (Prana Chikitsa) with pressure points (Marma Therapy)
4. Water: Steam Compresses (swedana) + Toner (hydrosols)
5. Replenish (brimana) with rich, nutritive flowerpetal creams and serums

In the sequence above, the oils soften and liquefy hardened sebum. The clays lift the impurities up. The flowerpetals and exfoliants stimulate new cell development and vital circulation. The vascular dilation and contraction with hydrosol toners corrects the pH and tautens the pores following their opening. The new cells are nutrified (fed nutrients) with serums and potent creams.

Result: pore extraction without squeezing or harsh chemicals. Healthier skin, brighter appearance.

This is just ONE example of the benefits to working with Ayurvedic Skincare over other methods.

CHAMPISSAGE (Indian Head Massage)
with/without oils
45 minutes
$55
Description: Deeply relaxing, purely meditative, tension melting bliss.  Champissage covers the spectrum from simply being a hot oil hair + scalp therapy to being a sacred, divine at-one-ment for your spirit. You can expect to leave feeling completely centered, grounded, calm, clear-headed, relaxed and awakened to all of your senses. This treatment incorporates scalp, head, facial, neck and shoulder lymphatic massage with marma pressure point massage. If you can, do get it WITH oils. The warm aromatic herbal oils clarify follicular sebum buildup that clog the hair root as well as adding lustre and strength through the ends of the hair as well. But, without oil, Champissage still works as a polarity healing.
